I'm not dead... I think I'll go for a walk!

Pretty much over the flu,
back from weekend travels & recovery,
now back to editing.

In the meantime, this guy was on our screen, outside.
He looks armored, like the knights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail*.

Blends in pretty spectacularly well with the grey metal screen.

But has much more personality....

Super wild guess is a hemipteran,
tho' I've not stared at it very closely, yet.


*Post title is lines from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, wherein a thin, old man is being offered prematurely to the man who gathers dead bodies off of the street. And the subject line are a few of the things he interjects into the conversation between the man who wants to get rid of him, and the dead body collector ("It's against regulations.")

P.S. have a reservation in Lee Vining for this Saturday, so apparently biobabbler WILL get some nature this weekend, & bring Nikon. YAY!!!


  1. i took a picture of this SAME guy on my front porch about a week or so ago...hadn't posted him yet 'cause i had no idea what he was...and hadn't had a chance to look him up!
    pretty cool armor!!
    (sorry to hear you had the flu...but glad to hear you;re better...)

  2. @Laura: Well, that's super interesting, as I took the picture LAST WEEK. Trippy!! =)
